    Yeah I'm also a big fan of the esports playlist. TDM or Obj are both good for me. I skipped Blops 2 and came straight from MW3, and I much prefer Ghosts mainly because of the esports.

    Why are none of the Onslaught maps on Free for All yet?!?!?

    Takes a while for them to be implemented into standard modes


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,849 ✭✭✭ MuddyDog


    How long? A week or that?


  • Registered Users Posts: 160 ✭✭ Caoimhin


    Couldnt say, I guess it depends on how many people bought the DLC really

    Freefall has to be the worst map in any COD game


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,769 ✭✭✭✭ Liam O


    After playing for a couple of days I'm actually not too sour on the game but the spawning is atrocious, like as bad as it's ever been in COD. The maps are so big and yet they seem to focus spawning on a small area, sometimes closer to the opposition than your own team.

    The streak system in Kill Confirmed especially is silly and doesn't encourage the objective play and the scoring system has gone backwards from blops 2 by not giving significant rewards for objective play.

    Sniper scopes are poor and a real put off too.

    im about to prestige a third time, it took so long at the start to level up, they had the majority of challenges locked.
    the camouflage onsie soldiers are annoying, i dont mind the camo being used when a fella is sniping but it goes on all the classes- then we end up with a fella in a patch of grass with a shottie or sub machine gun
    i hope the next cod is better spawn wise, they should implement something where if you dont move for 15 seconds you die stop all this camping

    Even though I have no great love for Freefall I can't agree.Try playing 6v6 on Chasm or Siege against a whole team using off the grid and get back to me.

    I agree with you there are too many bush wookies in the game.They blend in so well in a lot of situations.It's annoying.And now there are multiple Captain Price charachters in every game and it looks fcuking ridiculous to me.And the ducky camo....
    As for your second point try playing Cranked.When you get a kill you gotta get another within 30 seconds or explode.So if you're camping a spot and nobody comes back your streak ends.

    I generally play on my own as most of my mates have playstation. Last night consistently joining games where my team was being triple capped in dom and other team had helicopters and other kill streaks. Whats the point in joining a game where it is impossible to win. finished with 3 games in a row where I was the only person to go positive and I also got the most caps (1 guy went 4 and 62). Quit lobby joined another. triple capped chopper gunner up died 4 times from spawn Raged turned off xbox and went to gym.

    I normally enjoy the game have about 8 days of playing time and have prestiged 9 times but last night came close to putting controller through monitor

    Your experiences are very similar to mine.I play mostly solo on PS3 and do a decent job of playing the objective whilst holding a solid unspectacular kdr.However playing alone means you will often find yourself coming up against full teams and parties of 3 or more.Ghost is full of teams more than any COD I've played any even if they aren't great players individually they usually have enough organisation and teamwork to beat a bunch of randoms.
    What I do in these situations is check my teammates stats.If I see a bunch of numbers that are 1 or more i'll probably stay and accept the challenge.If I see a mix of numbers above and below 1 i'll probably stay because I know i'll have some support.If I see numbers under and not even close to 1 forget it.I know from experience what the result will be and if I stayed in the game i more than likely would be proven correct.
    Having said this game would benefit from having a mercenary playlist.I feel the amout of teams and clans would scare off a lot of casual players.

    Generally I really like this game...But the ripper seriously needs to be banned from the Clanvs.Clan playlist, it's even more OP than the msbs

    The maps are by far the worst in any COD game. No redeeming factor to them, too big and cluttered, constant corners and coupled with the retarded spawning there's always someone behind you so it's nearly impossible to snipe.

    The movement and feel of the game is quite good but you also die too quickly. I definitely preferred the damage system in BO2. Killstreaks are a bit out of control too, what I'd give for a launcher that locks on or a proper emp grenade like in black ops. The game is totally imbalanced because of this.

    God yes, I'd love a stinger like in MW3. One of the many reasons to stay in Clan vs. Clan.

    I think the lack of a mercenary moshpit or similar is really hurting me, nearly all I played in BO2, now just up against team after team.

    I don't mind teams all that much. I'm not a great player, my k/d is pretty poor, but even if I get just 1 good slayer on my team I can usually keep respawn games close. Search and Destroy is a bit of a lost cause though.

    In truth, I need to find a team to play with :o

    I would join but I'm on 360

    What's up with attachments too? You lose absolutely nothing for having a silencer on your gun. The system in BO2 was great, if you wanted all the attachments you lose on perks and vice versa, in this you can have 2 attachments, all the perks you want and more, really stupid stuff, not even a launcher to help shoot things down.

    Never really have the need to shoot down stuff doesn't come up that often. I just run into a load of people using the specialist set up, which is actually kinda cool, bloody killstreaks annoy me

    MEGAbitch time.

    Playing Freight dom cvc, started out playing the game of my life. Was 13-0, holding a comfortable 2 cap. For NO F*cking reason, 2 of my team-mates quit, my last team-mate not interested in capping and not slaying. Lose the rest of the game 3 cap. Mother of God.

    Edit: Thankfully that was my only misery tonight. Had 3/4 really good maps afterwards. Random quitting irritates the heck out of me, much more than bad spawns or whatever else. Was playing a Freight SnD, lost the first round and a guy on my team quit. I thought here we go again, but thankfully a good player had connected to replace him in time for the third round.

    Always thought this too. There's no incentive to stay though. If only it was like Halo and took levels off you, it ruins a lot of games across all of the CODs, whereas spawning is only really terrible in Ghosts, the other games that had problems with it patched it well.

    The spawning in this game is a joke. That's all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,878 ✭✭✭ heroics


    Decided to try and get a couple of guns gold just for something to do. I f***ing hate the lean challenge. I have about 6 weapons and the only camo needed is the lean one for them to be gold. Keep going into games and saying I'll just try lean kills. But then my competitive side takes over and I forget about it trying to win.

    Good map to get the lean kills is on Stonehaven along the edge of the map coming out of the castle head up to the building in the middle, you can crouch down and lean to kill them coming from the far side. Also play hardcore as it makes sure you get the kills with one or two hits!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,382 firestarter51


    Lean kills are fairly easy
    Trouble is it's too much like camping, I have 1 smg left to get gold
    Sliding kills are a pain, trouble is when I've for the camo I'm in such a habit of sliding I keep doing it like a c##k

    I have a scuff so I use sliding all the time. Went back playing black ops 2 and kept trying to slide and just dived on the ground :p

    I play generally with a sub and like to rush/capture flags in dom (main game type I play) and getting the lean kills I feel like I'm camping all the time. I'll try hardcore.
